(Photo by Andy Kropa/Invision/AP) (Newser) – Kevin Bacon has inadvertently given his Fox TV show The Following a big dose of publicity, but not in the way diehard fans will appreciate. We won't give it away here, but Bacon served up a major plot twist on Twitter before deleting the tweet and apologizing, reports the Christian Science Monitor. “To all the fans abroad and late watchers I'm truly sorry I retweeted a spoiler,” he tweeted. “I just wasn't thinking. Won't happen again.” In the show, Bacon plays an FBI agent chasing a serial killer with a cult-like following. If you just can't live without knowing the plot twist, see the LA Times coverage.
